Cards to warm up your Winter's Day

Hi All,
Today I am sharing some red hot cards to warm up your cold Winter's Day.
I have used some bright colours of alcohol ink & alcohol ink pearls
to make some pretty cool (I mean 'HOT') backgrounds.
Teamed with die cuts & stamping using Paper Rose products
& Gold cardstock.




This first background was created using Alcohol ink with my gel press 
through the new Moroccan Tile Stencil.
The Moroccan square die cut from gold cardstock overlays the patterned background.
More gold used in the Layered Hello sentiment die.  The stamped sentiment
 from the Hello stamp set in Versamark ink & brushed with Perfect Pearl Powder
as an alternative to gold heat embossing.



For this card I had made an alcohol ink background on Yupo paper that had great contrasting colours.
I layered the Ella's Garden Collection die #17985 cut from gold cardstock 
 over the top & placed a few coloured diamantes.  
The Layered Create die in gold & white cardstock matched with a sentiment 
from the 'Beautiful' stamp set, white heat embossed.
Mounted on a yellow alcohol inked card & raised on red fun foam, 
with the base card edged with gold washi tape.



 For this card I die cut a bright swirly background of alcohol ink on Yupo paper 
using the Sunray Background die with a lot of gold alcohol ink in the mix.
It looks brown in most of the photos but in real life it is really glowing gold.
One of the photos below captures this better.
For the underlay of the suns rays I used another alcohol inked paper
that I ran through a swirly embossing folder & then lightly rubbed 
over the surface with finnabair gold wax to highlight the texture.
The Hello sentiment was triple layered with white, gold & alcohol inked cardstock.
The Hello stamp set was used for the sentiment.
Stamped with Versamark ink then rubbed lightly with Gold Perfect Pearls powder.
Amber dots scattered to finish.
Mounted on a card that I coloured the edge with Tarnished Brass Distress Stain.
This is an easy way to give a touch of gold to cardstock when needed.


Hope these cards have brightened up your Winter's Day too, 
& given you some ideas how to incorporate gold in various ways to your card making.
Cheers for now,
Deb xx
